Managing communication channels on transnational projects 2006-01-2534
Most multinational companies have searched for cooperation within their units around the world when developing global products. To achieve this goal, those companies are making use of project teams whose members are geographically dispersed and culturally diverse. That context introduces more complexity to project management techniques especially on what concerns the communication among the project staff. Based on a bibliography research, this work intends to analyze how communication is affected by transnational context, what the importance of communication is to reach the project goals, and how it is possible to coordinate and communicate activities and information throughout multicultural and dispersed project members.
